pure about this, understand -- >> says the governor. >> they have their own tax policies energy costs, property taxes which is a local issue as opposed to the state issue that they have to account for. if we can stop competition, we should do it. but, we don't have those things. it is not an even playing field. let me give you another example. my republican governor colleagues want to see medicaid blocked. almost all of my democratic colleagues don't want to see it done. most of the democrats represent state that is will not enter into a race to the bottom when it comes to medical benefits. connecticut is never going to act as one legislature did in a state to deny a kidney transplant to somebody whose life will be saved by it. if you block grant it, you have a bunch of states that are not going to do this or this. there are states that are trapped. they wouldn't tolerate putting someone to death over a bad kidney. this is a serious argument. we can all talk about how we compare ourselves. understand, underlying all of that is we are not comparable. >> i actually think you are making
